ABC Certified Dog Trainer
Tampa, Florida 33647

Profile: I believe that dog training is essential to developing a life long human-canine bond.

I believe that every dog is capable of learning, regardless of the dog(s) age, or breed.

I believe there is no such thing as a dog that is bad, or un-trainable. I encourage and support owners to develop the confidence, patience, and understanding in working with their dogs.

I support local rescue, and strive to create opportunities for learning in my community.

My mission is to help, struggling dogs, and dog owners before anyone is harmed or feels harmed. Dog ownership is a 15 to 20 year commitment, we as trainers need to support the dog owners around us to be successful.

Profile: As a trainer, I believe you do not have to get your dog to listen or behave by intimidation or fear. I also don't believe that allowing your dog on the bed or letting him walk through the door before you weakens your relationship, or makes them the "pack" leader. I'm pretty sure your dog knows you're not a dog. What I know from experience is a good trusting relationship between you and your dog makes living together a pleasure.

Profile: I am a native of Toledo, OH and made a decision in March 2015 to move to Palm Beach Gardens, FL to realize my dream of working with dogs. I am a true dog lover, they are my passion! Earning my Dog Trainer certification has allowed me to do what every person should do, which is waking up every day and doing something you love for a living. I look forward to interacting with my clients and their dogs and I am always excited to see the progress that every dog makes. It's so rewarding!

I currently have two dogs of my own - Bella is a Beagle/Yellow Lab mix who is 10 years old and Lola is a Terrier mix who is 5 years old. They were both rescued.

My goal as a Dog Trainer is to keep animals in their loving homes so they don't end up in a shelter due to behavioral issues.

Profile: THE Pet ELF Mission
At THE Pet ELF (THEPetELF.com or twitter @dogtrainerELF), our mission is to reduce canine homelessness by teaching people how to communicate with and teach their dogs to live successfully and happily in the human world.

Our philosophy is reward the positive and ignore the negative (unless it is a danger to do so). We also encourage our humans to channel their inner cheerleader and effusively praise their dogs for desired behavior.

We don't believe that we have to be the alpha over our dogs. Research has shown that, in domesticated dogs, this is not necessary. We do, however, need to be the adult and set boundaries, as we do with young children.

We use positive training and basic psychology, working with a dog's basic instincts for unconditioned things, like food, toys and praise, to condition a dog to do things that may not be instinctual, like sit and stay. While treats and toys are important to teach new behavior, praise is the most important reward for our dogs. Once a behavior is learned, dogs are weaned off treats or toys and do things we ask because they want to please us.

We use hands-off training because we believe that hands are for loving not for teaching. We also don't believe in punishment. We want our dogs to love us, not fear us. Dogs respond very well to this type of training. This type of training not only keeps our dogs safe; but, helps them become responsible members of the household.

Further, we know through experience that not all behavioral issues are training issues and we know when we can help and when we need to call in the experts!

THE Pet ELF (THEPetELF.com) is certified as a dog trainer and as a veterinary assistant through Animal Behavior College, with continuing education in training shelter dogs.

THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES IN DOG TRAINING.
All we can do is our best - to teach our dogs be better household citizens.
IF YOU CAN’T MANAGE THE DOG, MANAGE THE ENVIRONMENT.
WE ALWAYS WANT TO SET OUR DOGS UP FOR SUCCESS.
END EVERY TRAINING SESSION ON A POSITIVE.

I will likely join Petco or Petsmart as a trainer when the right opportunity becomes available. As a lifetime dog lover that studied to become a veterinarian, I am very concerned with shelter animal issues.

Ideally, I would like to offer "consultation services" to families for selecting THEIR perfect "pack member" based on lifestyle and expectations. Work to find the perfect dog for a family and then continue with them for a few months to get the family through the awkward first few months of owning a new dog. In a small way, I hope to prevent abandonment of dogs.

I also have an opportunity to work with students at the high school three blocks from me to teach basic training and run AE group classes.

Profile: I have 3 dogs in my home that I have trained. Two of them are large and one is a miniature Dachshund that thinks she is larger than the other two combined. I have always been an animal lover. For the past 1 1/2 years, myself and another trainer have been training dogs at a Humane Society shelter, which is helping the dogs get adopted quicker. I love dog training and am very passionate about it. I would like to see every dog have a great home. Trained dogs are happy dogs with happy owners and forever homes.

Profile: Hello, my name is Tiffany. I have been, and will always be, a dog lover. My goal is to keep dogs in their homes, especially shelter dogs. These dogs have been through so much already and being torn away from their homes time after time due to behavior problems that can be prevented. Please call me or look at my website for further information.

I currently specialize in the "bully" breeds including Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, and more. These breeds have been given a bad rap and that could not be further from the truth. They are loving loyal dogs that deserve a loving stable home.

My future includes agility training, group classes, and CGC Prep. I am currently teaching private basic obedience lessons.

Profile: I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College as well as a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.

I do private in-home visits and work with the owner to help solve the dog's behavior problem(s) using positive reinforcement, patience and leadership techniques.

I encourage the use of treats, toys and affection to help motivate the dog and also try to make training entertaining and fun for the dog owner.

I work primarily in St. Augustine, Florida but also provide services in the Manistee, Michigan area a few months out of the year.

The training equipment I prefer to use are the Control Ease and Holt padded head collars and the Herm Sprenger prong collar. I am very comfortable using these collars and have used them on all three of my dogs.

On occasion I offer group classes through local rescues and shelter organizations in St. Augustine, Florida and Manistee, Michigan with part of the fee going to the rescue or shelter.
Coming soon I will be offering small intimate classes at my home limited to six dogs.

I also started a free dog walking club called Be A Pack Leader Dog Walking Club over 7 years ago and anyone is welcome to join us. It's a great way to socialize your dog and get exercise too.

In February 2012 I established a unique Be A Pack Leader Dog Training Scholarship Program to provide training for dogs and their owners who need a chance to solve behavior problems.

In June 2012 we partnered with the St. Augustine Humane Society to issue these scholarships.

Profile: Thank you for taking the time out to read and review my profile, your time is much appreciated.

I received my ABC Dog Training Certification in 2012 and since then have been given the opportunity to work with many different breeds and people. I have always had a love for animals, especially dogs. My favorite breeds are the "Bully Breeds" due to them being the most misunderstood breeds. I take pride in being able to show many people all the wonderful, heartwarming, sides of these breeds as well as their intelligence.

I have had the honor to work hand and hand with an extremely talented and educated woman, Mrs. Monique Williams, for two years in Georgia. Monique enhanced everything I had learned with ABC, she trusted in my education and abilities and gave me the confidence to trust in myself.

My greatest honor of being a Certified Dog Trainer is seeing the families smile at their four legged child(ren) instead of being stressed out. Being able to bring the love out for both human and animal by filling the gap of miscommunication between them is the most humbling and fulfilling emotion I can ever experience.

I thank you again for your time and I hope to given the opportunity to bring a smile to your families face as well.
